And apparently 7/31 is Happy B-day to Monte, who spent it once taping Jerry's B-day show! I was wondering how many B-day shows Jerry played -- not too many, it seems, just '73, '82 and '94 -- but here's a twofer where the first one, like 7/31/82, went past midnight. Monte contributed reviews to both. Pretty cool to spend your birthday making a tape, which is ultimately a gift to others.

Haven't heard the shows. Mixed reviews, but some of them point to neat stuff:

Yeeeah, if you haven't heard 8/1/73, definitely put that on your to-do list.

Don't weep at my grave,
For I am not there,
I've a date with a butterfly
To dance in the air.
I'll be singing in the sunshine,
Wild and free,
Playing tag with the wind,
While I'm waiting for thee.


The Days Between (track 2)

http://www.archive.org/details/gd93-02-10.rehearsal.Samaritano.17435.sbeok.shnf

There were days
and there were days
and there were days between
Summer flies and August dies
the world grows dark and mean
Comes the shimmer of the moon
on black infested trees
the singing man is at his song
the holy on their knees
the reckless are out wrecking
the timid plead their pleas
No one knows much more of this
than anyone can see anyone can see

There were days
and there were days
and there were days besides
when phantom ships with phantom sails
set to sea on phantom tides
Comes the lightning of the sun
on bright unfocused eyes
the blue of yet another day
a springtime wet with sighs
a hopeful candle lingers
in the land of lullabies
where headless horsemen vanish
with wild and lonely cries lonely cries


There were days
and there were days
and there were days I know
when all we ever wanted
was to learn and love and grow
Once we grew into our shoes
we told them where to go
walked halfway around the world
on promise of the glow
stood upon a mountain top
walked barefoot in the snow
gave the best we had to give
how much we'll never know we'll never know


There were days
and there were days
and there were days between
polished like a golden bowl
the finest ever seen
Hearts of Summer held in trust
still tender, young and green
left on shelves collecting dust
not knowing what they mean
valentines of flesh and blood
as soft as velveteen
hoping love would not forsake
the days that lie between lie between

A Hopeful Candle Lingers !

There's one kind favor I ask of you
Please see that my grave is kept clean

Probably one of my favorite of any of the 'rehearsal'/teaching sessions I've heard. I hadn't listened to it in quite a while. Thanks for the reminder!
